Most parents hear a lot about warning their children about the dangers of drinking alcohol, but now health and parenting experts are warning of a new dangerous trend -- “smoking” alcohol.

Videos online depict ways many typical household products can be used to create alcoholic vapors that can be inhaled.

Experts say the effects of “smoking” alcohol can be deadly because the effects travel so rapidly to the brain.  They say people who do so may not realize how much they are letting into their system as opposed to when they drink alcohol, which would take much longer to reach a deadly dose.
